Charges to remain against Texas driver who dodged paying over $5G in tolls with ‘license plate flipper’: cops

A Houston motorist was not quite free to drive off into the sunset on Thursday after a judge found “no probable cause” for the man’s arrest for allegedly using an illegal “license plate flipper” to avoid paying nearly $5,500 in tolls, authorities said.

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office has yet to dismiss the case against Preston Cody Talbot, 27, who was arrested last week for avoiding a toll on the Sam Houston Expressway and charged with a misdemeanor, Harris County officials said. Earlier reports had incorrectly indicated that the judge had dismissed the case, police said.

MOTORIST DODGED PAYING NEARLY $5,500 IN HOUSTON TOLLS WITH ‘LICENSE PLATE FLIPPER,’ POLICE SAY

“The judge found no (probable cause) but the charge remains in place,” an official with the District Attorney’s Office told KHOU-TV in a statement. “The DA Office must file a dismissal for a case to be dismissed, but we have not done yet so as the case remains under investigation, including points of law and developing evidence.”

Talbot is accused of installing a device in his car that puts a flipper down in front of his license plate so that cameras at toll plazas can’t read his plates. Police said he owes $5,473 in unpaid tolls.

“The case remains active,” Harris County Constable Mark Herman wrote on Facebook, following reports that the case was dismissed. “The District Attorney’s Office will continue to review this case in order to determine how they will proceed.”

Last surviving Doolittle Raider from attack on Japan remembered

It was a turning point in the war, just four months after Pearl Harbor, and gave the nation hope.

Lt. Col. Richard Cole, the last surviving Doolittle Raider, died last week at the age of 103. He was Jimmy Doolittle’s co-pilot in the lead bomber that launched the surprise counter-attack over Japan in April 1942.

“How we were selected to go on that raid I don’t know,” said Cole in an interview with the American Veterans Center in 2014.

The raid was a virtual suicide mission: 16 bombers with 80 men on board taking off from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet, 650 miles east of Japan, to bomb Tokyo and break the will of the Japanese.

The B-25 Mitchell bombers flew without fighter escort. The lumbering bombers had to be modified to take off on the short, pitching flight deck. Typically the bombers would need 3,000 feet of runway to take off on land, but at sea, they had only 500 feet on the carrier.

While inflicting only minimal damage, the raid boosted morale back home in the United States and changed the course of the war.

Three Doolittle Raiders were killed. Eight were captured by the Japanese. Four survived years of solitary confinement.  All but one of the bombers crash-landed in China. The Raiders thought they would be court-martialed, not honored.

Asked how he became Doolittle’s co-pilot on the famous mission, Cole said it was fate.

MARINE RUNNING BOSTON MARATHON FOR FALLEN COMRADES CRAWLS ACROSS FINISH LINE

“It was strictly by luck,” he said. “The 17th group got transferred to Columbia, South Carolina. They had put a note up on the board wanting volunteers for a dangerous nation. I had [to] put my name there.”

Two months after the raid, mission commander Brig. Gen. Jimmy Doolittle received the nation’s highest valor award, the Medal of Honor, from President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the Oval Office.

Cole received the Distinguished Flying Cross. The Doolittle Raiders agreed to meet every year until only two remained. In 2013, they uncorked a bottle of vintage cognac from 1896 — the year of Doolittle’s birth — for a final toast.

Thursday, a grateful nation will say goodbye to the last Doolittle Raider. Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson and the Air Force’s top officer, Gen. David Goldfein are to fly down to San Antonio, Texas, for the memorial.

Lt. Col. Richard Cole will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery if Congress intervenes, according to officials.

Three years ago, the Air Force said it would name its new B-21 bomber — The Raider — in honor of the legendary Doolittle Raiders.

Texas woman arrested, charged with capital murder after baby found dead in flower pot: report

A Texas woman was arrested after her newborn child was found buried in a flowerpot in a cemetery, officials said.

Jazmin Lopez, 18, identified herself as the mother of the baby, who was found by a caretaker at Perry Cemetery on March 11, Fox station KDFW reported.

FLASHBACK: TEXAS WOMAN, 18, SAYS SHE’S THE MOTHER OF BABY WHOSE BODY WAS FOUND IN CEMETERY FLOWERPOT

The caretaker “emptied what he knew to be an out of place flowerpot and discovered the body of a deceased infant beneath the pot’s soil,” the Carrollton Police Department previously revealed in a news release.

Authorities said the baby “was a girl, 34 weeks to full term, and weighed just under six pounds.”

Jazmin Lopez, 18, was reportedly arrested after she identified herself as the mother of a baby who was found dead in a flowerpot in March.  (Denton County Sheriff’s Office)

Lopez allegedly first told investigators that she gave birth to the baby, who was not breathing or moving, while at home alone, the news station reported, citing an arrest warrant affidavit.

Police said that after they found a photo of a seemingly alive baby on her phone, the woman allegedly changed her story, claiming she gave birth in the bathroom with family members home.

“Jazmin demonstrated that she took her shirt off and wrapped the baby up. Jazmin said the baby was moving and gasping for air,” the affidavit reportedly stated. “Jazmin said she knew the baby was about to cry so she covered her mouth.”

Lopez told authorities she “took the shirt and covered the baby’s face and then held the baby against her body for one to two minutes,” before allegedly putting the body in a basket of blankets.

When her friend arrived, she said she put the baby in a backpack and went to buy a flower pot. Lopez allegedly claimed she put the body in the flower pot, then placed dirt and flowers on top.

Investigators reportedly don’t believe Lopez’s claim that she covered the baby to keep her quiet, considering she had allegedly conducted a search history about abortion.

Lopez was taken into custody on Tuesday and charged with capital murder. As of Wednesday, she was reportedly being held at the Dallas County Jail on a $500,000 bond.

A garage fire erupted at boxing legend George Foreman’s Texas home Sunday night, damaging at least 40 cars, reports said

Foreman and his family were home when the fire broke out in the garage, but managed to evacuate safely, Houston station KTRK-TV reported. No injuries have been reported.

CAUSE OF DEATH FOR GEORGE FOREMAN’S DAUGHTER REVEALED

The fire was contained to Foreman’s garage, the Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office said. The garage is connected to the two-time heavyweight boxing champion’s mansion in Huffman, located about 30 miles outside Houston, KHOU-TV reported.

Firefighters used fans to vent the heavy smoke out of Foreman’s garage and home, according to the station. The extent of the damage to the 40 cars wasn’t immediately clear.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, KTRK reported.

The Foreman family experienced tragedy last month when the boxer’s 42-year-old daughter, Freeda, committed suicide by hanging in her Houston-area home.

Suspect arrested in brutal assault on transgender woman, Dallas cops say

Authorities in Texas late Sunday said the man accused of brutally beating a transgender woman in an attack in broad daylight that was captured on cellphone video has been arrested.

Edward Thomas, 29, was nabbed at 9:30 p.m. on Sunday over “his role in the aggravated assault,” The Dallas Morning News reported, citing police.’

Authorities said the woman reported the assault while receiving hospital treatment Friday night. She told officers the attack happened earlier Friday after she was involved in a minor traffic accident near an apartment complex in the southern part of Dallas, according to the police statement released Saturday.

A purported video of the attack posted on Facebook shows a man in a white shirt viciously beating the woman, apparently into unconsciousness, while the crowd looks on and homophobic slurs are shouted.

Several women eventually carried the victim’s limp body to safety.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said he is “extremely angry about what appears to be mob violence against this woman” and that those responsible do not represent how most residents feel about the city’s “thriving LGBTQ community.”

At least eight people — including three children — were reported dead by Sunday after powerful storms unleashed tornadoes and flooding across much of the southern U.S.

The severe weather left dozens of others injured, and roughly 60,000 people were without power as of Sunday evening in Texas, Tennessee, Georgia and Mississippi combined.

Franklin, Texas, roughly 125 miles south of Dallas, was almost entirely flattened by a tornado, according to the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office.

The tornado, which was rated an EF-3 with winds of about 140 mph by the National Weather Service (NWS), destroyed 55 homes, a church, four businesses, a duplex and part of the local housing authority building, officials said.

Pollok, Texas, a little over 100 miles northeast of Franklin, saw two children, aged 3 and 8, killed by a falling tree that landed on the vehicle in which they were riding on Saturday.

The tree “flattened the car like a pancake,” Capt. Alton Lenderman of the Angelina County Sheriff’s Office told The Associated Press. The kids’ parents made it out alive.

One person was left dead during a Native American cultural event in Alto, Texas, and another person was killed in Houston County’s Weches. A 95-year-old man died after a tree fell on his trailer in Mississippi and a 13-year-old in Louisiana also died after he drowned in a drainage canal, officials said.

Separately, one person died in a car submerged in floodwaters in Calhoun, Louisiana. Near the Birmingham suburb of Hueytown, Alabama, a county employee died after being struck by a vehicle while he was helping clear away trees about 2:15 a.m. Sunday, Capt. David Agee of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said.

A woman in Texas allegedly assaulted her common-law husband after he didn’t respond when she asked if she was pretty.

Lizeth Guadalupe Ramirez, 20, was arrested late Tuesday after the alleged incident, the Laredo Morning Times reported, citing police. She allegedly told investigators the man assaulted her and tried to strangle her.

However, the common-law husband reportedly told a different story, telling police the couple was at a movie theater when she asked him if she looked pretty.

Ramirez’s husband said he didn’t respond — as he didn’t hear her — which upset Ramirez, and prompted them to leave the theater.

During their ride home, Ramirez’s husband claimed she allegedly hit him repeatedly. At their home, she allegedly continued to hit him and even assaulted a family member who tried to intervene, according to the news outlet.

Three U.S. military veterans took their lives within 5 days of each other at VA facilities in 2 states earlier this month, prompting a call for action by lawmakers.

The first death was reported on April 5, when the body of 29-year-old Gary Pressley was discovered inside a vehicle in the parking lot of Carl Vinson VA Medical Center in Dublin, Georgia.

Pressley had a gunshot wound in his chest and was pronounced dead at 8:45 p.m., Laurens County Coroner Richard Stanley told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Pressley’s family said he was medically discharged in 2012 after a bad car accident and struggling with mental health care, according to the newspaper.

His mother, Machelle Wilson, told WMAZ-TV that Pressley’s sister called the VA to tell them her brother was threatening suicide from their parking lot just moments before he killed himself

“He told his girlfriend he was going to do it in the parking lot, so they could find his body, so somebody can pay attention to what’s happening, so other vets do not have to go through this,” she told the television station.

The following day in Decatur, Ga., 68-year-old Olen Hancock of Alpharetta killed himself outside the Atlanta VA Medical Center. Hancock had been seen pacing the lobby of the building before going outside and shooting himself, WSB-TV reported.

Officials did not disclose what branch of the military that Hancock served, but Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., the chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, called the deaths “unacceptable and devastating.”

“While we have taken a number of steps to address and prevent veteran suicide, this weekend’s tragic deaths clearly indicate that we must do better,”  Isakson said in a statement.

TRUMP SIGNS EXECUTIVE ORDER AIMED AT LOWERING VETERANS’ SUICIDE RATE

The third suicide was reported April 9 in Austin, Texas when an unidentified veteran shot himself in front of hundreds of people in a waiting room a VA Clinic. The incident happened shortly after noon, and prompted the building to be shut down, KXAN reported.

“All of a sudden, over the intercom, they have this statement about everyone must clear the building including staff, so it was a little surprising,” Ken Walker told the television station.

Currently, about 20 veterans die by suicide every day — a rate 1.5 times higher than those who have not served in the military.  In February, the Washington Post reported that 19 suicides were reported on VA campuses from October 2017 to November 2018, 7 of them in parking lots.

Richard Stone, executive in charge of the Veterans Health Administration, told Stars and Stripes there have been more than 260 suicide attempts on VA property, 240 of which were interrupted and prevented.

Rep. Mark Takano, D-Calif., the chairman of the House Committee on Veteran’s Affairs, said Wednesday the deaths were part of a “national crisis” and that a full committee hearing is scheduled for later this month to discuss the issue.

“Every new instance of veteran suicide showcases a barrier to access, but with three incidents on VA property in just five days, and six this year alone, it’s critical we do more to stop this epidemic,” Takano said in a statement. “All Americans have a role to play in reducing veteran suicide, and the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs is going to make this issue a top priority.”
